Heiner and Sabrina Pohl, returning to their roots after studying and working in large enterprises, run a sustainable farm at Marinushof, situated above Kastelbel/Castelbello. A mixed culture is maintained on the modern farm: wine growing, apple growing, distillery, farm holiday and wine shop complement each other. Sonnenberg in Vinschgau/Val Venosta is excellently suited for wine growing. Many hours of sunlight, dry climate and prehistoric slate rocks provide the perfect site for Burgundy varieties as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Zweigelt. Vigorous wines with character, structure and charm develop here. In the distillery, the famous fruit from Vinschgau/Val Venosta is transformed to first class schnapps. "Our aim," says Heiner Pohl, "is to naturally transform to its quintessence the taste of the fruit, without flavouring agents or sugar."
